One car, two performers and you.
You are invited on an imaginative journey transporting you out of the familiarity of your surroundings, and into a world of wonder. Come meet Rita, Stewart and their animated auto/mobile, and experience a road trip with a twist!
auto/mobile is an interactive outdoor piece suitable for children under 13 and their families, taking place in a parked car. auto/mobile is a 20 minute experience for three audience members at a time. Audiences meet Rita, Stewart and their animated auto/mobile, and go on an ‘underwater’ journey in a small car, encountering sea creatures and sudden leaks along the way.
When people pass by auto/mobile they first wonder what is going on: they see performers doing something in and around the car, and wonder what the experience is for those inside the car. Crowds usually gather as people watch the action.
When audiences finally enter the car they experience the underwater journey and the magic which the outside performers are creating. Inside the car audiences experience a piece with humour, playfulness and gentleness, as they journey ‘underwater’.
Our ambition is to take audiences on an interactive and participatory experience. auto/mobile is an intimate performance where performers and audiences share the same small space of a car, and the piece offers audiences an art experience where they are placed right at the centre of the action and make use of all five senses, instead of merely spectating with their eyes.
